The petition of the day is:

17-935

Casey entitles a court to preliminarily enjoin a state abortion law—which mandates a “contracted physician” with hospital admitting privileges that effectively bans medication abortion, offers no discernible medical benefit, and leaves only one remaining abortion provider hundreds of miles away from significant population centers—without making a concrete estimate of the number of women who would be prevented or postponed in having an abortion.
